These days there is no talk of anything else: Chrome OS here, Chrome OS there, people are testing the novelty by virtualizing it, some loved its concept, others hated it. Everything is very beautiful, but know that, while the Mountain View giant will only materialize its operating system in the middle of next year, there is already a very similar project on the market: litl.
When viewing this webbook (great, another term for "computer") you can think that it is just one more laptop, only with the difference that its screen opens until it almost closes in reverse. But not: while the exterior of the litl is practically commonplace, in its guts are the differentials.
You can forget about a hard drive to save torrents, for example, since litl works entirely on the basis of cloud computing, leaving only the litl OS stored in its 2GB SSD. The rest of the hardware is just the minimum required for a home computer: 1.6GHz Atom processor (only for rendering websites), graphics chip with H.264 support and 720p output, camera, microphone, two speakers, 1GB of RAM , Wi-Fi 802.11b / g, headphone jack, USB 2.0 and two infrared receivers to use the remote control that comes with it (haha, new MacBook has none!).
The 12-inch screen is so bright that it can practically be used in sunlight, in addition to having an impressive 178 (!) Viewing angle. The company is so confident in the quality of its product that it offers a two-year warranty (twice the rest of the market), assuming that the litl “never breaks”. Removing practically all moving parts must have helped
